Dunnes Stores urgently recalls kid’s swim jacket due to ‘risk of drowning’ after over 1,200 sold


Parents are being advised to return a kid’s swim jacket sold in Dunnes Stores after officials detected a fatal error with the product.

They informed Irish consumers that “Dunnes Stores Unlimited Company is carrying out a recall of Dunnes Kids Swim Jacket.”

According to the notice, the “risk associated with the product is that of drowning”.

The bar codes are 5099014540546 / 5099014540539 / 5099014540522.

There are approximately 1,237 affected products in the Republic of Ireland, according to the CCPC.
